Feed  On His Faithfulness

Because  of God’s all-powerful love,  we should not  let ourselves  faithlessly fall  into depression  over our life’s troubling situations.     Whatever is going on,  God is still  in control  and can be depended upon  to carry us through.     That is why King David wrote  in Psalm 37:3,

Trust  in the LORD,  and do good;
Dwell in the land,  and feed  on His faithfulness.

So,  just how do we “feed  on His faithfulness”?     To “feed”  on something  is to get nourished  and cared for  by it.     Sheep  and cattle  will graze  on the grass  they need.     A shepherd  will lead his flock  to good pastures,  so that they may  gain nourishment.

We all need  to “feed”  on good foods  in order  to maintain  our physical strength.     Our souls also need good nourishment  every day  —  they need  to “feed”  on the truths  of God’s  “faithfulness”.     When we  “feed  on His faithfulness”,   we study  and meditate  on God’s word,  so that our souls  can be nourished  and strengthened  with the truths  of God’s  “faithfulness”  towards us.      It is in the Bible  that we hear  the words  of God  and His promises  of total forgiveness,  faithful love,  and eternal salvation.

Good food  can be set right  in front  of us  —  but,  unless we put forth  the effort  to eat it,  it does us  no good.     The same is true  with God’s word.     Unless we put forth  the effort  to study  and meditate  on the Bible  to feed our souls,  it will do us no good.     We need  to  “feed  on His faithfulness”  if we honestly desire  eternal life  and strength  to get through the challenges  of each day.

Strengthened  by the truths  of God’s  “faithfulness”,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  thank You  for teaching us  in Your eternal word.”

Love,
Margaret
